We have a use-after-free issue where log completions access buffers via the
buffer log item and the buffer has already been freed.  Fix this by taking
a reference on the buffer when attaching the buffer log item and release
the hold when the buffer log item is detached and we no longer need the
buffer.  Also create a new function xfs_buf_item_free() to combine some
common code and move an ASSERT in xfs_buf_rele() so that we can catch more
cases.
